“What a kind host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

We arrived at the beautiful B and B with our 2 daughters, 10 and 12. Paolo (the host) quickly said we would find the room we had booked a bit cramped, and offered us the use of his stunning apartment, massive, full of character with kitchen-dining room and bathroom...for no extra cost.
It was such a kind gesture and made the start of our holiday really special.
Thanks Paolo.

L'Angolo del Poeta is a pleasant B+B in the lower Bergamo area. It is reasonably centrally located in the lower town and the walk up to the Citta Alta only takes about 15 mins (once you have acquired a decent map of the area). There are a few restaurants in the local area but many were closed when we were there in August. There are also a number of shops very close to the B+B.

The B+B is in a nice 16th Century building surrounding a courtyard. Our room was quite large and had some nice decorative stonework above the bed and in the bathroom. The room had most things we needed including free WIFI, a TV, Minibar and tea and a kettle. There was no airconditioning - probably because they are not allowed to change the old building - but a fan was provided and this kept us reasonably cool even in the August heat.

When you checkin, you are asked at what time you would like breakfast and this is served in your room each morning. The breakfasts were fairly simple: eggs, cheese, toast and yoghurt with tea, coffee and orange juice.

There were a couple of minor issues with the room. The towels provided in the bathroom were very small - more like hand towels than bath towels. The room had a bath that had a hand shower attached but this was not very convenient if we just wanted a quick standup shower. There is also no shower curtain so we flooded the floor when we tried to use it like this.

The issues were very minor though and we had a very pleasant time at L'Angolo del Poeta. For the price, it is a very good place to stay,

Beautiful apartments in the city center. Room is very dainty, stylish, design of bathroom beyond praise. Excellent location in the old street. A varied and delicious, hearty (not in Italian) breakfast :) The hosts are friendly and hospitable. We were met at the airport at night and were lifted free to the train station the next day. We are also very grateful for the free extra beds for our children

L'angolo del Poeta was a fabulous B&B. The building is old and charming. The room and bathroom are newly renovated, with bar fridge and flat screen TV. The security is very good and the breakfast was huge and nicely presented. The beds comfortable and everything spotless. A 10 minute walk from the train station and ten minutes to the vernacular. Not in the high city but on a charming old street. Staff friendly and helpful, english limited but not a barrier.

Stayed here for two nights with a girlfriend on a trip through Lombardy. Truly wonderful stay, beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast. The best part however, was our hosts, Simonetta and Paulo, both spoke excellent english- which is by no means a requirement but allowed us to find out about so many great gems, they drew a map for us and outline where to eat lunch and dinner each day and attractions to go to. Bergamo the city is wonderful, people friendly, food excellent. Road the train into Milan one day- not worth it to me, choose Lake Como instead.
